Aynsley Saxe

Firemen...true love...loss… These were just a few of the themes explored by singer-songwriter Aynsley Saxe on her first album, Take Me As I Am, released in April, 2013 to a fire-capacity crowd at Hugh's Room in Toronto. With a firetruck welcoming guests at the door, along with a 9-piece band, the album release party garnered not only the firemen's attention. Her feature single from her first album, "Stop, Drop & Roll (The Fireman Song)", was released in November 2012 as a CD single & free digital download. Even before the recording was finished, its teaser preview on YouTube attracted over 850 views and a tv commercial licensing deal for the Saskatchewan Professional Fire Fighters Calendar.

Now, Saxe's latest single Beautiful Tomorrow is set for release in April 2019 for Earth Day. Inspired by Irish author Lorna Byrne's book "Love from Heaven" as well as a whale that was found with 80 plastic bags in its stomach, Beautiful Tomorrow has an environmental focus and features a duet with singer Kevin Reid and 20 youth singing background vocals. With a hopeful, yet urgent message, Saxe's intention for the song is to stir the hearts of listeners in order to promote positive change for our planet. Early listeners have indicated that Saxe is doing just that. One mom commented that her eyes filled with tears as she listened to the kids record their part. The accompanying "Behind the Recording" video for Beautiful Tomorrow is also scheduled for release in April, 2019.

Ever a student of her craft, Aynsley began songwriting while on a youth exchange in New Zealand. Her fascination with words and lyrics continued through the years leading her to eventually graduate with an Hon. B.A. from the University of Western Ontario in English/Film. During her time in school she also discovered energy healing, eventually becoming an accredited Reiki teacher. She has since written scores for internationally acclaimed short films, performed sold-out shows in Toronto, and studied with well known songwriters and vocal coaches across Canada and the United States.

Known for her piano driven ballads, Aynsley takes listeners on an emotional journey that can have them laughing out loud during one song and reaching for Kleenex during the next. A quote she once heard stands out to her: "Music can heal the fabric of the world." With that in mind (and heart) she seeks to write from a place that will heal, uplift, inspire and connect us to each other.
